john allen has return to afghanistan to exhume his duties more than a week after the pentagon says it is investigating him for what he -- what they call an appropriate occasions with a woman linked to the david petraeus scandal. general allan was expected to testify before a senate committee last thursday on his nomination to become the commander of u.s.-european command and the top nato general. that nomination has been put on hold. finally, president obama pardons' the national thanksgiving turkey this afternoon at a white house ceremony. the tradition started back in 1963 with president john kennedy. those are some of the latest headlines on cspan radio. [video clip] the name of this place still resonates with the shuddering in the hearts of the american people. more than any other name connected to the civil war except lincoln's, a gettysburg reverberates and americans retain knowledge that what happened here was the crux of our terrible national trial and even americans who were not sure what precisely transpired on the skills know the glory and all the tragedy we associate wi
the conclusion was that there was no wind pentagon security and no criminality, -- there was no impingement upon security and no criminality, why were these decisions made? >> i think it was just such an egregious series of bad judgment -- a series of decisions of bad judgment i'm not questioning the man's intellect, his service, his commitment to the country, his patriotism. but first, you are carrying on an affair in an exposed e-mail situation. i do not know how you carry on an affair with or without e- mail, but i can tell you this, that is about the dumbest thing you can do. plus, he is with this woman, who to call her less than stable is a complement on the highest order pipa -- order. there were warning bells set off by him. he writes a letter endorsing her as a mother to a judge who basically says, you are absolutely wrong. and let it be noted -- and it was duly noted by the marine general george allen. it makes you wonder what is going on with these folks. >> it raises the question of whether classified material was compromised in any way. the other thing is that patraeus resign and he
correspondent jennifer griffin lived and works in that region joineds us live from the pentagon. good evening. what do you think. would the deal have happened without the secretary of state hillary clinton's intervention? >> yes and no. it's interesting to note that hamas had agreed to this agre agreement 24 hours before the secretary arrived. it was supposed to, the cease-fire was supposed to go in to effect at 9:00 p.m. local time last night. that is when hillary clinton was landing in jerusalem to meet with prime minister of israel. that is when she began her 24 hours of shuttle diplomacy. it's interesting that the white house is taking credit for the truce. the statement from the white house said that the president recommended to thehe accept the deal. the deal that the egyptians had achieved with hamas. what is striking to me how s how much power it will give to spoilers as an iranian proxy group like jihad and popular resistance committee, because everything falls apart if there is any fire from the gaza strip. it looks a little tenuous now. the one achievement is that she made the pres

clear and the president was clear during the campaign that the pentagon has actually asked for less than what republicans, you know, have wanted to give them. there are a lot of outdated systems that just don't need to be paid for in our military budget. and that should be okay. but it really does have to start with taking away the death grip that grover norquist has had on not just the republicans who signed his pledge, but on the american people. i think if you ask any normal person, they would say, who? they have no idea who this man is. and he should not have any source of input into our economy. >> true.

are calling shuttle diplomacy between israelis, palestinians and egyptians. our pentagon correspondent barbara starr is joining us with more on this part of the story. they're sending some crill cal messages to iran, aren't they? >> absolutely, because as this firepower is tragically on display, everyone is watching to see what the other guy is up to. israel ace iron dome miisms have intercepted about 85% of hamas rockets fired at israeli civilians. it's a military success, but still short of all-out victory. >> the terrorists may be the big winner in so far as it doesn't take one or two of these things to land in a major urban center to calls political respond, to cause panic and maybe at that point forced israel ace hands into a ground operation. >> reporter: hamas is banks on iron dome's potential weak spots. >> it does have a certainly limits to the number of missiles it can engage, so hamas will undoubtedly be trying to figure out what those weak spots are. >> reporter: ben wedeman has been seeing growing hamas sophistication. >> some is more than one stage. it's a long rocket, has to be

answer to the pentagon. a city threw a bomb on to the bus or left one it is not a suicide bomber, but 10 people were injured. three of them very seriously wounded here in this attack. the two suspects on the list would be hamas or islamic jihad, both operating out of the gaza strip. hamas is peace talks and trying to figure out if a cease fire over israel with the rockets and the bombings on the other side going into the gaza strip . islamic jihad has a different agend a. they are backers in iran who are pushing for rocket fire against the gaz strip. we should have a shot up of this on our live view, you can actually see this bus that stopped. this harkens back to the days of the second intfada where you had bombing on the buses mainly suicide bombings. this doesn't appear to be that. but it is a mange failure for the israeli intelligence services in a critical time, whether it is going to derail the peace talks or not is yet to be scene. obviously the fact that secretary clinton is in town and able to be the a voice of calm could mean that everyone goes to cairo and gets involved in the
morsi. jennifer given is live at pentagon. what was the reaction to the bombing. >> reporter: there was strong reaction and condemnation from the white house, the spokesman at the white house jay carney as well as from the state department and the secretary of state hillary clinton who arrived about two hours ago in egypt where she has been meeting with the egyptian president, morsi. certainly her job more difficult in the wake of this suicide bombing down in downtown tel-aviv. it's the first bombing essentially in the last six years, since the end of the palestinian uprisings, the intifada. it's going to make her job a lot more difficult. aides have said she planned to be home for thanksgiving. it's not clear whether she'll ned to go back to israel, back to the israelis and palestinians after meeting with president morsi in egypt. here is the statement she issued in the wake of the tel-aviv bombing, quote the united states strongly condems this attack and our prayers and thoughts are with the victims of israel. eupl closeli am closely monitoring reports from tell louisiana s

.i.a. amid scandal. there could also be big changes at the pentagon. as well at state department. whoever the president chooses, it could impact, for example, the use of armed drones taking out al qaeda overseas. and lots of other security matters. and now, a fox news contributeor and pollster joining us, and former senior advisor to senator john mccain. the use of the unmanned drones to take out terrorists who want to murder americans, on its face it should be a no-brainer but national security appears to be politicized. >> that is right. to their credit the obama administration in the days up to the election were trying to codify the rules and regulations for making those difficult decisions. however, we are alonging at the possibility of massive defense cuts. we have new personnel, as you suggested, coming in potentially to state, defense, and c.i.a., and we have our whole national security apparatus being overhauled at a time when we are in great peril as reporting from the middle east, particularly gaza strip and israel suggests. >>gregg: president obama, it can be said, has a checke
in the white house situation room or at the state department or the pentagon said it's not worth it. we can't go in and help them. and to understand how long the attack continued, that's really troublesome. the fact that the united states cannot respond within an hour's time to an attack like that on its own state department? that's just inkrcredible information to give to the world and if i were a member of the diplomatic core, i would be troubled. >> i'm sure they are. when they talked to general petraeus, they talked about the intelligence. it goes back to the intelligence for me. i have asked others before how this does not compare, the susan rice issue, to the condoleezza rice issue on weapons of mass destruction. she was also wrong when she was the national security adviser, right? she had information and she talked, remember, to wolf blitzer about let's not have the smoking gun become a mushroom cloud. fast forward three years in 2005 when she was up to be secretary of state, it was lindsey graham who was furious that the democrats were pushing back. it was senator john mccain who we
